Blue Cheese Wedge Salad

There is something about an iceberg lettuce wedge salad. Simple, yet elegant.

For Chris’ birthday, my friend Kate made homemade blue cheese dressing for our salads. It was the BEST blue cheese I’ve ever had! She got the recipe from her friend Cozy. So, thanks Cozy! We love your dressing!!!


4 Tablespoons crumbled Blue Cheese, about 2 ounces (I used 4 ounces of Gorgonzola, so I would add per your taste for blue cheese)

1 cup Sour Cream

1 cup Mayonnaise

1 Tablespoon Rice Vinegar

1 teaspoon Horseradish

2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/4 tsp garlic powder

Salt and Pepper to taste

1) Mash the blue cheese into the sour cream.  If you want it less chunky you can whirl in the food processor.

2) Stir in the mayonnaise and remaining ingredients.

3) Chill.

Cut a head of iceberg lettuce into desired sized wedges. Place one wedge on each salad plate. Spoon dressing over lettuce. Sprinkle with sliced green onions and bacon crumbles. Top with fresh cracked black pepper.
